    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what the best CD to Mp3 converter on the market is

    Cost is not an object if it is of extreme high quality.

    Thanks again for your help
    Anthony

    i use db poweramp music converter. it's free, and you can unlock more features by purchasing the power pack for it. i think it's $20.00. along with their cd writer (which costs extra), many codecs, and own forum for support, you can't go wrong.

    I would have to agree with Intoxsickated DB Poweramp is easily the best. I've been using this program for almost 3years. Excellent support is available on their forum.

    I vote for freeripmp3 v.2.941. It used to have some (optional) spyware, but this version is great, no spyware. I've tried a lot of those programs (even commercial ones), but I think freeripmp3 is the best & easiest. (Freeware)

    Is hard to answer your question since there is no "clear best " for everybody.......

    And sound quality depends on the encoder rather than the app.........
    And i suppose if you are talking about the app.

    Easiest to use - I personally think Easy CD-DA Extrator. The interface is good and clean.

    Quality of Ripping - EAC for the perfectist and CDex's P Mode.

    And Overall - I would agree on DB Poweramp as well. It has got nearly everything of the above 3.

    I agree with this user, I also currently use Acoustica Audio Converter Pro, its very easy to use and got right click function, which make thing going faster without wasting time.
    And Acoustica Audio Converter Pro already set sound quality PRESET, example like TAPE quality is 128kbit, CD quallity is 192Kbit, and other. So, give it a try!!!:thumb:

    I also like eac, but from my experience with it it was a little slow for me, and occasionally produced coasters.

    if ya looking for a cd ripper try Audiograbber its free and expandable by adding plugins like lame_enc.dll

    this will alow you to extract the songs form the cd and will let you encode them to mp3s with verious bitrates
